    I recently played a Fender Am Std Jazz with these:


    Delano JMVC 4 FE/M2 and it was 2012 position!

    Try them if you get the chance.

    Hum-cancelling J4 Lakland pickup. Fabulous in both positions, but the bridge position has the raised pole pieces which is a nice touch. Great vintage tone. Love the duncan vintage for jazz also (sjb-1) pickups and used them for years. Great pups.

    Kent Armstrong Hot Vintage Jazz, crystal clear, punchy, yet still has that classic Jazz bridge tone with more oomph....LOL
